Dr. Asa Hoxey was 1800 in Georgia. He favored Texas independence and served in 1835 as Washington County delegate to the Consultation at Washington-on-the-Brazos, which issued the Texas Declaration of Independence. He also served on the General Council and participated in the Siege of Béxar. Although he did not practice medicine after coming to Texas, he served as medical censor during the first administration of President Sam Houston. He was regarded as “a brilliant and delightful conversationalist” and was “an omnivorous but discriminating reader”. His home became a favorite meeting place of the leaders of the republic. He died on May 20, 1863.
